* The book is only suitable for advanced players *

A major problem for every 1.e4 player is the rock-solid 1...e5. The Ruy Lopez is considered the main answer, but a disadvantage is that Black has many different concepts at his disposal, which leads to a huge mountain of theory that is constantly growing.
The authors Karsten Müller and Georgios Souleidis take an alternative path with the Italian Opening with c3 and d3, which follows a similar basic strategy but allows fewer counter-options and is therefore very popular with many club players. This is no surprise, however, because it is a very natural opening with a lot of tradition. White develops his pieces in a very natural way, quickly brings his king to safety and fights for the center from the start. These are the basic rules of almost every opening and these are the rules that chess trainers should teach their protégés. But the white strategy is so sustainable that more and more strong players are resorting to it. Even world champion Magnus Carlsen has included it in his repertoire.
In addition to the theoretical part, which offers a complete white repertoire after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4, the authors have analyzed many instructive sample games, incorporated tactical and strategic tasks, examined typical endgames and worked out explicit answers to the suggestions in current black repertoire books.

Grandmaster Dr. Karsten Müller was born in Hamburg in 1970. He studied mathematics and received his doctorate in 2002. Karsten Müller has been playing for Hamburger SK in the Bundesliga since 1988 and won the Grandmaster title in 1998. The globally recognized endgame expert was named “Trainer of the Year” by the German Chess Federation in 2007.

Georgios Souleidis (1972) is an International Master from Hamburg who works as a chess trainer and author and has been playing Italian successfully for a long time.
